Busy Mama

Happy New Year to all! I love New Years, I love New anything. Always a new challenge and adventure which I am up for. And speaking of new, this dress came in the mail the other day and I was so excited because I am a huge fan of the built in choker, one less necklace I need to worry about! Like I said in my previous cut-out neck post this detail adds sexiness without showing too much. Too much skin is never good and this is the perfect amount. And I love how the dress is ribbed adding a nice texture and touch! This can be dressed up with a pair of OTK books and a hat or the way I style it over jeans. I like the vibe the bell bottoms add, almost 70s inspired. If worn as a dress, it is a swing dress style so even little ankle or sock boots would look great. I just see the bohemian potential this dress has to offer. It is also on sale and I will provide a link* below. Today’s look was just simple, one that I can actually maneuver in because it is a busy day. We started off at the doctor for Mase, then he wanted his favorite (chicken noodle soup) from Panera, fill his prescription, go food shopping, renew my license (bc I’m getting old) and do a hundred loads of laundry (that’s what it feels like anyway). Oh and let’s not forget I still need to take down my tree. I tackled all the decorations yesterday, phew! Sorry for the run-on sentences but I don’t think the grammar police are reading today anyway! Happy Monday y’all!

Camel Coat

I’ve been away from my blog for a hot minute. There have been many changes going on in my life, amazing ones and I don’t have the time anymore for anything! I still manage to post outfits on my Instagram but to get into major detail on my blog, it’s been on the back burner. Today I am making the time. After all, everyday is Christmas for a blogger, just with deadlines ha! So this camel coat I was so ecstatic to receive and it is on sale for under $30. I mean, REALLY? This is a staple I can keep in my closet forever ever ever!!! And ever. I’ve always wanted a Kevin McCallister “dad” coat (Home Alone anyone?) and now I finally have my hands or arms in one! I didn’t want to distract the eye from the coat so I paired it with all black and I think the look came out amazing. I would say people around me did too because they couldn’t stop staring. When something is good, it’s neck break worthy. The ONLY thing I wish this coat had was a tiny slit up the back but I can always create that with my handy dandy scissors. Slay or sleigh (”tis the season) the day ladies! Please keep in mind I don’t edit my photos so yes that’s a hormonal pimple on my chin. I really don’t care to edit it out. I like to keep things real around here.

Just Do It Later.

I was approached by SheInside to style an article of clothing, so I took a gander at their site and fell in love. SheInside is a fast fashion website, geared for the trendy with affordable prices. With constant sales and limited free shipping from time to time, it is worth every penny! When they told me to pick a few items I was stumped, I wanted pretty much everything. I narrowed it down by picking my favorite color, black, and my favorite style, comfy. Naturally, I knew I had to have the ‘Just Do It Later.’ tee. It is pretty much the story of my life, a procrastinator. I am always putting off the un-fun things like doctors/dentist appointment, hair, nails, shopping for big events last minute. Even things like the dishes and washing my hair, ugh. So this shirt fit me perfectly, literally and figuratively. The tee makes a statement, and is a play on the Nike slogan, Just Do It. It’s great for the gym or for a casual outfit. It can even be worn with a skater skirt and some sneakers. It is black and white so it goes with just about anything and the best part about it is its 60% off!!! SheInside is also offering free shipping until tomorrow, June 14th and it is 40% off your first order, so don’t walk, run!

Let’s just talk a little about Mason here because I can’t even deal with him. This little outfit is foreshadowing into his future, a basketball pro! Andrew and I both played basketball when we were younger and we were awesome at it, so this little man will be a natural. It is already his favorite sport, just like mommy and daddy. I also must say that his outfit is pajama’s but he wears it as an actual outfit. I bought it with every intention of it being worn outside and not in bed. Too cute for just bed.
